  1. I wonder what the used market is looking like. Because someone who was a new photo enthusiast and did little research can get a used DSLR and lenses for fraction of the cost on a camera 5-8 years old and the images really hold up. Not mention people selling off gear they don't use to pay their bills while unemployed.
  2. I had the first Ursa Mini 4.6k and though it was a really good image. Blackmagic reliability was super poor. First one had the magenta issue, then they sent me new one after a friend got me chance to directly talk to Grant Petty at Cine Gear Los Angeles and they sent me a new one. Got the new one and less than year completely died on a shoot and was barely used. Sent me a third one and to deal with the IR, Moire and aliasing issues that plagued it had to buy a special third party sensor filter. By that time I gave up and saved up enough for a RED Dragon X then upgraded it to a Gemini and has b
  3. I knew there was something wrong with this. I thought Canon was going to leap forward but who were we kidding. Think about it. Canon always wants to protect their cinema cameras. This makes working filmmakers go ugggg I can't work with that and come up with more to buy the new cinema cameras. And the main target is hobbyist/prosumer who want the best specs on paper or a photographer who want to grab a shots that the quality will hold up to the quality of the stills. It not meant for film or video production. They do not want it to be. But they want those specs to get the people to buy th
  4. Hi I have a documentary coming up and need to travel light for it. I want bring alot of SD cards and record to 2 cards at once instead of bring hard drives along for back up. What are the cheapest and most reliable SD cards for the 4k 10bit 150mbps? I use the SanDisk 128GB Extreme PRO UHS-I SDXC Memory Card 95MB/S flawlessly with that record setting. But I noticed there is a new generation of the Extreme Pro that is faster and also the lower level cards SanDisk Extreme (non Pro) versions are rated at 150MB/S and $20 cheaper for the 256gb. Are people using the lower level
  5. The goal of the kit was for indoor use or night time wouldn't be much help with on a sunny day. Maybe one day lights will be the efficient.
  6. I put together a Interview Lighting kit that fits all into a backpack including 3 light stands, batteries, chargers and umbrellas. Got to test it out Saturday night and its perfect for interviews when traveling and I believe everything should be safe to carry on a plane. The new Aputure Amaran AL-F7 on camera LED light' have a very good energy efficiency when set at 55k color temperature and along with the GH5S and A7S Mk ii low light capabilities got me thinking about making a very useful scaled down lighting kit for travel. I am using 4x Aputure Amaran AL-F7 LEDs with batteries. Each N
  7. Anyone try the Benro A673TM, Libec ALX T, Acebil T750M? Or should I just get the Manfrotto 546B used?
  8. What are the best tripod legs for under $500 and can handle over 15lbs?
  9. What is the major difference between the two? I am seeing Samsung and Sandisk Micro SDXC cards cheaper than the SDXC cards but with the same read and write or even faster read speeds. I thought Micro SD cards being smaller and priced cheaper would be slower? Is there something I am missing. Like are the Micro SDXC less reliable than the full size ones? I would be using them with my GH5S with the 4k 10bit 150mbps not the 400mbps setting. I have 2 Samsung 64gb EVO Micro SDXC I have few times used with the GH5S when in a jam for more cards on a shoot and didn't have any issues. Am I ru
  10. Went to their Vimeo account and downloaded the upload file for this to see the least compressed version instead of youtube. I have been working a lot with the GH5s since they came out this year and in middle of coloring 2 projects with them. I can diffidently tell the noise pattern and grain feel the same or close. This seems little sharper maybe the lack of OLPF and IR filter. Colors seem little nicer, but at first glance feel very similar. I might rent one when they come out and compare there differences. At the end of the day I will probably stick with the GH5S no matter what, I have had to
  11. But I am reading I am reading reviews on amazon about even these where having issues. I need to make sure when I role on a take its bullet proof and not going to screw up a shot.
  12. So from people reviews the Atomos recorders and HDMI cables are not reliable? If the cables are this finicky how are they worth it during a crucial shot? Should I cancel my preorder and get faster SD Cards for the 400mbps mode and deal with out having 4k 60p 10bit?
  13. Selling a Brand New Blackmagic Mini Ursa 4.6k Ef for $4500. My last one got damaged and I wond up with a brand-new from Blackmagic instead of them repairing. I am not using it as often on gigs so selling it. Its sealed sent straight from Blackmagic to me last week along with the v-mount plate. Here is the Craigslist add. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/pho/d/new-blackmagic-design-ursa/6634121790.html
